Don't know how the Workhorse is set up, but on my old P32 chassis, it ended up being the shift cable. The cable that runs down thru the steering columm to the transmission linkage. I had to get it replaced.
It was my first experience with emergency road service, and not really a good one. The guy disconnected the transmission linkage and put the tranny in drive. Had to start and park in drive the rest of the way home, about a thousand miles. Could not back up without crawling under the motorhome and moving the transmission lever, so I had to be very careful where I stopped!!! And the ERS service guy, well all I can say is wow!! He had just gotten out of prison and had his girlfriend with him and was in a old beat up car??? Got it fixed when we got it home.
Thanks again tomousecap. So far so good. Thanks EVERYONE for all the good tips too. We had pretty much eliminated all the other things before posting about the problem. Should have added in the beginning that it will start fine. It's after that that we have the problem. Hopefully spraying with silicone will fix the problem. Looks like an easy replacement too if just spraying doesn't fix it. If it continues we'll definitely check out your solution too Musicman. Thanks a million everyone!
Just to finish out this thread here is the info for the commonly defective brake pedal switch that causes this problem on Workhorse Chassis. It is available at most Chevy dealers parts departments.

I looked for this number for sometime before I found it, enabling me to get it from other than a Workhorse Shop....
